This case is the rhino of cases. Like an armored tank, it protects your new iPhone 5 investment on all sides; it even protects the screen with a see through/touch through tough polycarbonate film.
Your phone installs in three easy steps. First, you snap the clear shield onto the front of your phone over the screen. Then you slide the phone and shield into the silicone sleeve starting with the bottom first. Finally, just snap the hard, protective shield to the back. Then you just press down on the home button to lock the pieces together. Now your pride and joy resides in a secure environment.
This handsome case, while highly protective of its charge, sacrifices little in sleekness. It is still slim and trim, fits nicely in your pocket, and makes a proud presentation.
There are openings for all the ports and controls, but they are covered with flexible removable material to keep out dust and debris. The camera lens openings are protected too with transparent material.
This case will set you back $39.99, but it's a small price to pay for the protection it offers. Get one for yourself or give as a stocking stuffer:
Note that it comes in five color choices: black, aqua, grey, yellow, and pink.
